Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

Many of our pious predecessors led such pious and righteous lives that those who merely observed their sublime character and honest dealings were forced to embrace Islam. Unfortunately, in today’s times our condition has become such that people are turned away from Islam after observing our dealings and character. (Malfoozaate Hazrat Shaikh 1/63)
